Synopsis

Like the fabled unicorns, the Le'enle are often hunted for their magical bodies, to be distilled into potions and ground into powders to heal the sick and give powers to the mundane. When Agile Storm's mate dies on a distant world, he returns there to seek her killers... and justice. Originally published in The Leading Edge #45.

A short story in the Compass Rose universe.
